Spyder 550

Born over seven decades ago, the 550 Spyder acronym remains synonymous to speed, freedom and rebelliousness – the latter adjective thanks to the American star James Dean. With an enviable record on the competition tracks, the model weighed only 550 kg in a recipe that combined a central engine, tubular chassis and an extremely light body. Not by chance, the same formula is used in the construction of the recreation signed by Chamonix. Manufactured in Brazil for more than 30 years and exported to several countries, the Chamonix Spyder 550 was chosen by the German magazine Auto Motor and Sport as the best recreation of the sports classic, in a test commanded by none other than the former world champion of F-1 Phil Hill. The model received several accolades for its construction and dynamic behavior. In addition, we passed in the rigorous chassis torsion tests carried out by T.Ü.V of Germany, which is considered to be capable of receiving engines of up to 250 hp. For all these reasons, it is no exaggeration to say that the Chamonix 550 Spyder preserves the same voracious appetite for speed as the model it was inspired by.
